Talking nm in flex metal conduit

am installing a new cook top stove and will be upgrading to 3 wire nm from the old 2 wire se cable which runs unprotected inside the cabinet up to the stove junction box. i gather it is ok to run the nm inside flex metal conduit for a short distance(3 feet) from the basement up to the stove box.

what would be the correct way to transition to the conduit covered nm in the basement? is it best to run the nm through a junction box(just as a pass through) and then pick up the conduit at the box outlet or to simply put a junction box connector onto the end of the conduit and not bother with the junction box .? sorry if i don't have all the terminology correct ! thanks for your input.

you should run it to an accesable junction box so you can bond your flex to the grounding conductor (bare wire)of the new cable. im assuming Of course your running this circuit back to your panel or another j box that is properly grounded.
